Tina Cassini, a rare, high-fashion doll from the 1960’s, shared her surname with her famous creator – the legendary fashion designer, Oleg Cassini .The doll was actually named after/for Cassini and his famous actress-wife Gene Tierney’s daughter, Tina Cassini. Quite naturally, Cassini (whose most celebrated client was First-Lady Jackie Kennedy)¬† designed the Tina doll’s glamourous wardobe of high fashion outfits, which you can see below in reproduction pages from the original fashion booklet which accompanied the doll.The Tina Cassini doll was manufactured by Ross Products, Inc. in British Hong Kong.She is a vinyl, 12″ doll with rooted, bubblecut hair, which came in two shades – blonde or brunette.The doll was introduced in 1964 and appeared in the Sears catalogue in 1965; she is very similar to Ideal’s Tammy and the British, Pedigree Sindy doll and is particularly appealing to/sought after by fashionistas as well as fashion doll collectors, due to the Cassini name and the part Oleg Cassinit¬† played in fashion/pop culture history.
